Amphibian and reptile training courses in partnership with the Field Studies Council

Training courses with the Field Studies Council vary from introductory-level training, covering general amphibian and reptile survey techniques, that are open to all, including beginners, to more specialist courses that address specific species, such as natterjacks, or more advanced techniques including reptile survey techniques, and the well-regarded great crested newt licensing and mitigation course, which provides invaluable specialist training for professional ecologists.

Please visit the FSC website for more details and to book your place.

Other training

Each year Amphibian and Reptile Conservation runs a series of training events designed both for volunteers and professional ecologists. National Amphibian and Reptiles Recording Scheme (NARRS) training opportunities will be listed on this page as they become available. To find out more about volunteer surveying opportunities, please visit the NARRS website.

Also, you may find that a local Amphibian and Reptile Group is running a training event near you. For further details take a look at the ARG UK website.
